    jl 8w7 vs kicker s10L5

    I have been running a 10" solobaric L5 with a clarion apx1300 amp. The amp puts out 400w rms at 2 ohms and 300 at 4 ohms. I just recently bought a JL 8w7 in a custom jl ported box and am planning on running it off the same amp. Can anyone tell me what kind of difference in sound I can expect from the new setup? thanks in advance.

    X2................. IMO the S10L5 will sound better though, guess it depends on your vehicle some though

    Re: jl 8w7 vs kicker s10L5

    alright then.......... I was about to retract my first thoughts there for a moment.

    I'd say the S10L5 will be better then.

    I had 2 Kicker S10L5 and also a pr of the L7's. I sold them all and got 2 JL 10w7's and run them off the same amp (JL 1000/1) and i thought the S10L7's were WAAAYY better. I didnt see a HUGE difference in my L5's and my L7's though. Both in the same size ported enclosure and sounded pretty **** close. GOD did they slam. I still hate myself every now and then for selling them. Keep us posted.

    I have never owned the 8w7, but I WAS NOT impressed with my pr of 10w7's of my single 12w7. Just wasn't what everyone hyped it up to be IMO. Hope you do enjoy it though! i guess for an 8" sub, they will get pretty loud.
